About this author

Penny Draper, commonly known as the Disaster Queen, is a bookseller by day, an author by night and a storyteller all of the time. Her books are about disasters - rockslides, tsunamis, tornadoes, storms and shipwrecks - so there is plenty of mayhem and destruction. But there are also heroes.
